as senate republicans back in washington threatened to derail and deny his nomination of chuck hagel. we're looking live at the senate where moments from now they're going to take a vote that's likely to delay the confirmation of a much-needed secretary of defense for this country, a country, by the way, that's still at war, and we'll bring you that live. but first, we take you on an exclusive tour of wayne lapierre's new york. that's right. this is how the nra's chief executive describes the city of new york today in an opinion piece published on the daily caller beb site. after hurricane sandy, he writes, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. looters ran wild in south brooklyn, and if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark or you might not get home at all. yes. while nobody in this city recognizes that bogus, racist, and entirely mythical description of new york during the hurricane, mr. lapierre says ordinary americans are now at the mercy of everything from marauding latino gangs to urban thugs and drug d

>>> let me finish tonight with the stalking of senator hagel. those who don't want this man as pentagon chief will stop at nothing. they're trying to slow the process of his confirmation, anything to give them time to find something to bring the man down. question, who are they try king to bring down? is it president obama's pick for secretary of defense? or is it the man the american people have chosen? is it about a confirmation or a desperate push to undermine the president's second term. listen to those attacking senator hagel and you'll hear the yelps of pain, this motley crew of neocons and the sun belt feel. what they hate, despise, really, is the fact that now in the history books, the american people voting in great numbers reject their war-reich jinglistic notions of what america stands for. their problem is with america's choice of who it wants to be president. who it wants to sign. and what we should be doing in this world. obama works for peace. he works hard for it. this crowd has other ideas. and that's "hardball" for now. happy valentine's, everybody. what a

the secretary of state confirmed. they have foiled attempts to confirm chuck hagel, denying him the 60 votes needed. the nomination is hardly dead. it looks increasingly likely that the democrats will be able to muster the needed votes but they will have to take a 10-day recess. again. the republicans have blocked cluck hagel from being confirmed. >>> today is the day that singles tend to go looking for love. >> but you also want to stay safe and in the fall for a scammer on the web. make sure you guard your heart. never give out personal information to someone until you've met face to face. do your due diligence first. google potential dates. find out what you can about their background. keep high standards, and also make sure you check in with the reputable data sites only. steer clear of apps with compatible tests. they tend to have fees. >>> if you're looking for unconditional love, dogs and cats are the perfect partners. >> there's a valentine's day adoption special. from now until sunday, the adoption fee is being reduced to $44. >> just trying to share the love. we know that animals b

on the other side who are supporting hagel, senator hagel for being the next secretary of defense. .. that letter of solidarity for israel. the same. the same thing as a clearing the rain and revolution guard a terrorist group. he was one of only four who did that. so i would only say, this is not a filibuster. everybody knows it's not a filibuster. i hope the media is listing that they are. this is the same thing required by the democrats and the cases john doe tim steve johnson, the case of rob portman. it is the prerogative of the senate. it's not a filibuster. they nearly won a 60-vote margin. i commented earlier that we had a republican in the white house in a majority in the senate. i was here and never objected to that. then of course you had kathleen sebelius right now, cabinet position. secretary of commerce john brace and objected to him. so the only issue here is the 60-vote margin. it's not a filibuster on the last thing i say is i will read again to their last speaker and are very good friend is the chairman of the committee when he said the other day and i wholeheart
